Five Awesome Ways to Support Marin Schools

With huge budget cuts to education, it's up to us to support our schools. Parents, business partners and other community members play a critical role to help supplement funding the education of our children. Show your support by bidding on great fundraising auction items to help support Marin schools and/or attend their fundraising events. If your school has a fundraising event or online auction please let me know or leave a comment.

Saturday, March 14, Willow Creek Academy will host its annual "For the Kid in You" benefit. Kids of all ages are invited to a free ice cream social in the afternoon featuring Lappert's ice cream and kid's crafts. The fun will continue into the evening with an adult's night out featuring food, dancing and a wide selection of fabulous auction items at Idesst Hall, 511 Caledonia Street, Sausalito. Tickets are available for advance purchase and the Online Auction is currently open and accepting bids, as well as previewing silent auction items which will be available for bidding at the event.
